(Golden Perfection) Very sweet, pale green flesh is just marvelous. Yellow and loosely netted, a very beautiful melon. This was one of our top melons in our 2003 trials, truly incredible! It was listed in Vilmorin's book The Vegetable Garden in 1885, but is very rare now. An all-time favorite and a dream for market growers.

What are the pros? grew well

What are the cons? bug eaten

Review:

I'll preface this by saying I didn't get a single melon. That said, I GREW a ton of melons. Unfortunately, they were all eaten by bugs and subsequently rotted. This thing went crazy in my raised bed and overflowed by about 12 to 15 feet, climbed the fence in to the neighbor's yard, grew up flower plants, and general took over my small yard. From two mature plants a total of maybe 40 melons started to form. Only 5 or so made it to a large size without being eaten or rotting. Those 5 grew to full size, but were eaten before ripening. I need to learn about pest control.

What are the pros? none

What are the cons? didn't grow at all

Review:

The seeds planted directly in the ground around June 1 germinated after a cool beginning. They put out a few leaves and then just sat there and went nowhere with poor color. By mid July I gave up and replanted with a fall crop of kohlrabi that did well. Other cantaloupes planted nearby thrived. My garden is in a zone 5 area. I think this variety needs warmer weather.

What are the pros? outstanding taste

What are the cons? not cold hardy, perhaps?

Review:

This was the most difficult melon alongside of 'Sakata's Sweet' from my 12 varieties in this year. I think it suffered a lot from the cold weather. (Zone 8a-7b) The only plant survived and made a tiny fruit in the end. But when I tasted it, I was astonished by its excellent quality. So, I'll try one more time.

What are the pros? Should slip

What are the cons? none

Review:

We grew 15 melon types in 5 gallon containers last summer. I got excited when this one started turning a mustardy-yellow and picked it, but I was supposed to let it slip. We tried it anyway and the center was deliciously sweet, so I think if it had been allowed to finish maturing, it would have been excellent! It took 27 days from the time it sprouted for it to flower, and I picked it at 87 days from sprouting, so that gives you a ballpark idea of how long of a growing season it needs. For those who might want to start early indoors, at 29 days from sprouting, the vine measured 29 inches long. Our prematurely picked melon weighed in at 1 pound, 15 ounces.

What are the pros? looks good

What are the cons? couldn't grow

Review:

I was so excited about this melon. It germinated fine, and I thought all was well. Until I didn't have any melons by the frost! It began blooming and then, nothing. Don't know what happened, I watered and weeded and everything else. Wonder what went wrong?
